An act of leadership

 

A decision by the head of any company, division, or department to systematize the business is in itself an act of leadership.

Monday, the 19th September

A decision by the head of any company, division, or department to systematize the business is in itself an act of leadership. Yet it is an easy, specific step to take – a concrete way of making the will to manage effective in achieving company success.

In deciding to systematize the business, the executive makes two commitments to himself: first, to maintain the will to manage; second, to devote much of his time to building, maintaining, articulating, and supporting the system and to make it effective in action. This means that he will have less time for day-to-day operational decision making. He will have to keep out of the details. He will be forced into a leadership posture. 16 Marvin Bower

The 10 people systems essential to optimizing performance capability

You will find in most of my words only things which most people know and concerning which they have no doubts. But to the extent that they are well known and their truths revealed to all, so is forgetfulness in relation to them extremely prevalent.  M.C. Luzzatto

Blame fixing - the invisible germ!

it is a point of view and one that attacks all of us like an invisible germ and distorts our outlook. It must be exorcised absolutely and completely, leaving no trace to multiply and reinfect us.5 Thomas Gilbert
